I'm with sullyfish
now: I have no idea who owns the property. It sounds like dad still owns it, in which case he can let your brother stay there for as long as he is alive. And if your dad wants your brother to stay there longer, then he better draft a will.
I'll only address one of your questions, jodie
9. I am in Indiana, the family is in Virginia and Tennessee. How would I go about getting an attorney ? Should I contact the attorney that drew up the sale agreement ?
Ask friends and family for references. Contact the county bar association and ask it to provide a list of lawyers who specialize in real estate matters. Do a web search for lawyers in that area. Consult the Yellow Pages.
I would advise against contacting the lawyer who drafted the sale agreement, since there might be a conflict of interest between you and your father and siblings. You want a lawyer who is representing your
interests, not everybody's interests.
All of the other questions that you asked can be answered BY AN ATTORNEY, not by us. There is only so much help that we can offer you, and that limit has now been reached.
